Poured up on tap at the brewpub where it exhibits a clear red to amber body that supports an off white head of foam. The aroma has some vague fruity ester yeasty notes mixing with light roasted malts and vague sort of hops. The taste has a quick, I’m getting, banana estery note that gives way to some roasted malts, a hop nuanced biscuit malt note and then a decent enough hop bitterness. The hops seem more bitter and lighter on the flavor hop side of things. It works though and a little more effort assessing the flavor and a pine hop character is noticed.
Very kit like, plain but balanced, some sweet caramel flavors, light, and thats it. mcberko (18981) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 26, 2016
On tap at Desert Eagle, pours a hazy amber orange with a small beige head. Aroma brings out lots of resinous hops, along with bready caramel malt. Flavour is robust, with resinous hops and caramel bready malt in decent balance. A little bit of a hoppy astringency on the finish. Not overly complex but decently constructed.

Draft at taproom. Pours light brown with a white head and lots of lacing. Not getting much on the nose. Definite hop bite on the tongue. Taste fades a bit as it warms. Finishes clean. Eh!

Tap at the brewery. Rating #5. Dark red with a little amber/brown. Nice aroma, hoppy with a nice bit of caramel. Flavor was good, more hops and caramel that had a nice balance. (2764) cubs (10714) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAR 24, 2013
Tap @ Desert Eagle. Pours a bit hazy, dark reddish orange appearance with a light brown head. Somewhat spicy, lightly piney hoppy, caramel aroma. Lightly smoked, burnt caramel malty, light veggie, herbal, somewhat bitter hoppy flavor. Ok. alexanderj (3605) - Branson, Missouri, USA - DEC 20, 2012
ON tap at the brewery; after a few surprisingly good brews, this was a little bit of a let down. Poured an amber color. Aroma of fruit and earth. Flavor had a bit more sweetness and spice. Weird finish. Ok. daknole (11402) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - OCT 29, 2012
I think this is my 300th AZ beer rated. Red pour at the brewery. Nice spicy hop note followed by a good dose of caramel malt.
